So given that I've been sick and my feverish brain is unable to concoct a concise sentence, let alone a bunch of them strung together to create a mediocre-at-best blog post, I figure now is a great time to roll out... Topic Cassoulet. A random mishmosh of thoughts and observations, kinda like Chat Stew, but chic-er.
1. Vera Bradley
Ok, so not to hate, but the only contact I have with V. Bradley is when I shop for my mother. Back when granny was still alive, I could always count on a VB box to bring a twinkle to her eye that only Chanel can elicit from my bourjois peepers. But something weird is happening over there at the Bradley bunker. I first noticed it when I was in search of my new gym bag and then again when Xmas shopping for Salami (an unfortunate nickname my mom's stuck with)... they have launched, how shall I describe them..., CUTE bags!? I'm currently formulating my opinion, but I'm excited to see these leather lookers make the blog rounds as I'm sure some 'sponsored posts' are on the horizon for our more popular colleagues (one day....).
This is another one of those 'Ante Up vs Pinch Your Pennies' guys, but I'm not ready to do another designated save/splurge post so in the meantime I'd just like to sing the praises of Dove haircare. Ok Wen die-hards, calm yourselves... I know, detergent, stripping, and SUDSING oh my! But I fell in love with these products back in college when my freshman RA was suddenly having noticeably good hair days back-to-back. She did the Christian thing and shared what was behind those shiny, bouncy locks and I immediately bribed an upper-classman to drive me off campus (a PLNU thing) to the nearest Target. Four years and 2,920 days later, I still love Dove's Daily Moisture shampoo and conditioner and have yet to find a high-end name that holds a candle (which, on another tangent, why do I even TRY???).
I love it, Tropical is the best flavor, and that is all.
I LOVEEEEE THIS EYESHADOW!!!! It's super-pigmented so just a dab will do ya, but the finish is perfectly metallic/glossy not sparkly/cakey. I probably wear this every day in some capacity, whether it's alone, as a base, or my personal fave- dabbed just on the center of the eyelid over my finished makeup look. I get a million compliments when I wear this stuff and should probably just buy some MAC stock at this point.
That's all for now! Got a new Sephora haul I'll have to share/dish on so stay tuned for that!!
